Listening to a book about food while fasting is a bad decision.

September 14, 2018 at 12:26 pm

Ok one more quick process video for today:

September 14, 2018 at 10:59 am

At the end of the year I’ll pick out a few of my favorite reads and share those. Spoiler: the trilogy biography of Theodore Roosevelt will likely be among them.

September 14, 2018 at 10:56 am

I am also a miserably slow reader. So audiobooks at 1.6x~ speed have been a boon for productivity and enjoyment.

September 14, 2018 at 10:37 am

One of my major goals for 2018 that has improved my life has been reading more. Already passed the 50 book mark for this year. It’s been amazing. Can’t recommend it enough.

Another sketch process video:

September 14, 2018 at 8:26 am

Screwed up yesterday’s video order, so here it is in proper order. Watch me sketch a landscape super fast:

September 13, 2018 at 7:20 am

Another of yesterday’s sketches. Felt so good to just play again.

September 12, 2018 at 5:52 pm

Been working super hard on some Magic stuff for a long time now, but took a little time this evening to sketch some stuff just for me. <3

September 12, 2018 at 11:11 am

I didn’t get to do much work on Ravnica this time around… so enjoy this flashback to my most popular card from the last time we were on Ravnica.

Doing a live Art Camp critique on weather & climate in landscape painting in about 15 minutes:

September 12, 2018 at 5:24 am

Don’t trust people whose brushes never stain or fray from use. They clearly possess some dark magics.

September 11, 2018 at 12:17 pm

For sale: Cintiq Companion 2, i5 128gb. Unused in box. Shoot me a message at

September 11, 2018 at 10:00 am

September 10, 2018 at 8:10 am

A little something I started last year that I still need to get around to finishing.

September 9, 2018 at 10:22 am

Kinda my first professional gig as an artist: painting interminably for Legend of the Five Rings.

BTW the new game is quite good.

September 9, 2018 at 7:31 am

As Darkness Rises

My first gig for D&D, almost 8 years ago now.

September 8, 2018 at 10:57 am

September 7, 2018 at 9:50 am

I have to delay my book until at least next springβ€”good work opportunities came up and I just couldn’t say no, leaving passion projects like my book relegated to the back burner. πŸ™

September 6, 2018 at 3:31 pm

Rachel just baked fresh bread and I am reminded, once again, why it was such a good decision to marry her.

September 6, 2018 at 7:13 am

It’s a strange transition to see a painting go from something worthless, roughly treated, sanded, scrubbed, etc. to something delicately treated and valuable when it’s done.

September 5, 2018 at 8:53 am

Doing an Art Camp critique in a few minutes. Talking all about lighting and color. πŸ™‚

September 4, 2018 at 10:30 am

September 4, 2018 at 7:51 am

Quick sketch I did of my wife a while back–I should paint her more. It’s a damn shame to have such a pretty wife and not paint her a lot.

Now I’m gonna sleep for a week.

I’m not exactly known for my Legacy-playable printed cards, but stop on by anyway at #GPRichmond πŸ™‚

August 28, 2018 at 7:41 am

Random oil painting tip: don’t paint while wearing a white shirt. It’ll reflect more light on to the painting and mess you up.

August 27, 2018 at 10:43 am

Cleansing Nova

Because everyone always needs more board wipes.

August 27, 2018 at 9:39 am

Doing our weekly critique for Art Camp and you can come sit in. We start in just over an hour and we’re talking about lighting in landscapes.

August 21, 2018 at 6:36 am

Gotten myself into the addictive habit of painting to audiobooks instead of music. Currently wrapping up the series on Theodore Roosevelt, which is pure gold:

A few notes on signing fees, artists, and GPs:

See y’all at #GPRichmond in a couple weeks. <3

August 14, 2018 at 12:51 pm

Highly recommend reading Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. It’s an enlightening look into the extremely varied lives that facilitated the creation of so much great work.

August 14, 2018 at 10:14 am

Can’t show my painting but look at these pretty colors. Dioxazine purple is a life saver (winsor violet, to be more precise).

My hotel just tried to put a $3600 security deposit hold on my card.

Clearly I was planning to burn everything down.
